The much-anticipated clash against Orlando Pirates arrived, the scene was set and both teams came to the party. Three points were at stake and an opportunity to close the gap from the log leaders Kaizer Chiefs.
“Difficult game and a game of two halves, we controlled the first half and I must give the Buccaneers the second one. They had chances and did well and they could have hurt us. We could have had something in the box but it was not one of our best games. A point we can take under the circumstances” said Pitso Mosemane
The game had all the ingredients for a humdinger but the break from football showed as both sides were cautious from the start and it showed with the number of opportunities created. Keletso Makgalwa and Sphelele Mkhulise were proving to be a thorn in the defence of the visitors and the latter had an opportunity to take a shot but Ntsikelelo Nyauza was quick to block his attempt. Going into the break the score was 0-0.
